Let’s cover the basics of laminate flooring

Laminate flooring today is a stylish and affordable alternative to genuine wood, stone, or tile. It's even now considered a trend in itself, and you can get anything from light wood, high variation and reclaimed wood looks, marble and granite surfaces, and tile pieces with bright colors and patterns such as encaustic styles and filigree. This flooring has the superior durability, ease of maintenance, and uncomplicated installation that it became known for so many decades ago. Here's how to find the best quality.

Choose the best laminate product in your budget

While it's always tempting to save money upfront, a thicker surface will look better, perform well and last longer than a thinner one. Depending on quality, these floors can last up to 25 years. A robust surface also hides subfloor imperfections, is quieter, and has more design options, simply because it's easier to carve on a heavier surface than a more fragile, thin one.
While thicknesses range, the best ones are over 9-mm, but you may want to go as high as 12-mm for the authentic wood, hard surface feeling.

Decide on version and image

A waterproof laminate flooring version keeps spills from absorbing, eliminating all concerns about staining and rippling. That version makes it suitable for installation in every room in the house, including the kitchen and bath. Be sure to specify if you want the original or waterproof version.

In your chosen laminate, you should see clarity and vibrancy with knots, grains, swirls, and veining variations. In addition, the floor should also have depth, dimension, and textured appearances (a big trend), such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed. It can be cut into planks to mimic hardwood or groutable squares for stone and tile echoes.

In addition, this flooring is durable enough to handle heavy foot traffic, pets, and kids and is also easy to maintain, with just regular sweeping and periodic mopping. Installation can be a floating floor where pieces click together, mat, then hover over the subfloor with no nails or glue. Subfloors need to be clean, dry, and level.
